Deconstructing 6 major marijuana myths

 http://oneradionetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/marijuana_got_it_wrong.jpg

'Over the recent past few decades, the social stigma from the over-the-top absurdities of 1938's Reefer Madness have mostly evaporated. Millions have asserted they have at least tried marijuana without going insane and looking for stronger drugs to get "higher." Yet, today cannabis, a.k.a. marijuana, remains a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) Schedule I drug, dangerous, addictive and without any medical merit.

Let's examine and refute some of the propaganda that puts users in prison and holds this plant as a Schedule I drug.'

 FDA APPROVED DEATH BY 'MEDICINE'

'If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?
At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

Let’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

I’m talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).'

Researchers Show That Genes Aren't Responsible For Cancer's Potential, But The Body's Culture Medium Is

 http://www.diabetes-warrior.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Time_DNA_Destiny_Cover.jpg
'A team of Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) researchers have proposed that an "on and off" epigenetic switch could be a common mechanism behind the development of different types of cancer. 

The existence of this epigenetic switch is indirectly supported by the fact that tumors develop through different stages. When cells rapidly grow during cancer progression, they become stuck in their current stage of development and their cell characteristics do not change. So what does change?'

'What does food have to do with your stress levels? More than you might realize. About 40 percent of Americans say that stress drives them to overeat or eat unhealthy foods,1 which, in turn, trigger physiological changes that can make your mood worse.

If you become ill or gain weight due to stress-induced poor eating habits, it will only make your stress worse, prompting a vicious cycle than can be difficult to break out of.

On the other hand, carefully chosen healthful foods can have the opposite effect, working to boost your spirits and even lessen anxiety. A proper diet may not only help you feel calmer but can even lessen the damage that stress does to your body.'

'There has been some controversy over the activity of adding synthetic fluoride to municipal water supplies and elsewhere, but not enough. The seriousness of this issue is more than what most realize. Fluoridation ranks with GMO's and tainted, forced vaccinations among the great crimes against humanity.

Understanding the Different Fluorides

There are two types of fluoride. Calcium Fluoride, which appears naturally in underground water supplies, is relatively benign. However, too much consumed daily can lead to bone or dental problems. Calcium is used to counter fluoride poisoning when it occurs. This redeeming factor indicates that the calcium in naturally formed calcium fluoride neutralizes much of fluoride's toxic effects.

'I Cure Cancer is an eye-opening documentary that brings natural cancer-healing protocols to life through testimony and experience. The film empowers the individual to seek answers outside of the medical establishment's cut-poison-burn approach to cancer management. Instead, the film highlights a more integrative approach that empowers the mind, spirit and immune system.

I Cure Cancer is directed by kickboxing champion and actor Ian Jacklin.

Jacklin, who began his kickboxing career in Canada, became a championship fighter at a young age. When he moved to America, he eventually became an actor, starring in the 90s fighting films Death Match and Expert Weapon.

Now, Jacklin is taking on a new opponent: America's growing cancer epidemic.'

5 Steps to Heal a Leaky Gut from Ibuprofen

'Millions of Americans take over the counter painkillers like Advil or Aleve without a second thought for any random ache or pain or cold symptom.  What most don't know is that those drugs (called non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) are responsible for over 16,000 deaths a year, more than die from asthma or AIDS. 

But there is another less recognized side effect (or should we say effect, because side effects are nothing more than unwanted effects of medication).  These drugs damage your gut lining causing a condition responsible for a whole range of ailments from allergies to autoimmune disease.  It's called leaky gut.'

'Looking for a healthy snack food the whole family can love? Breaking the salty snack food habit is one of the hardest parts of healthy eating, and getting children to give up salty snacks is almost impossible. But now you can replace them with a munchy-snack alternative that offers both great taste and great nutrition! Pumpkin seeds  are nutty tasting, crunchy, chewy, and slightly sweet. When sea salt, herbs or spices are added, they turn into a healthy snack food that would please the biggest junk food addict.'

How To Save Your Lungs Before It's Too Late

 http://yourmedguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/lung-health-Your-Medical-Guide-2-1024x845.jpg

 'As a society, my feeling is that we don't put enough emphasis on protecting our lungs against harmful macro and microscopic particles; this is a huge mistake, as reduced lung capacity is, in my mind, more damaging to quality of life than say, sub-optimal digestion, mild to moderate liver dysfunction, or even reduced cardiac output. 

 If you strongly disagree with this opinion, I'm willing to bet that you'll change your mind if you spend some time in any intensive care unit and sit by a few patients who are unable to properly oxygenate their blood because of reduced lung capacity - this is a heart-wrenching scenario, one that I don't wish upon the grouchiest people I know.'

'Contrary to the common belief that the Earth is simply a dense planet whose only function is a resource for its inhabitants, our planet is in fact a breathing, living organism. When we think of the Earth holistically, as one living entity of its own, instead of the sum of its parts, it takes on a new meaning. Our planet functions as a single organism that maintains conditions necessary for its survival.'

How Walmart’s New Mass-Produced Organics Line Could Threaten Organic Farming



'Mark Smallwood remembers gardening with his grandmother in Ohio when he was a kid. They used organic farming techniques because, to his grandma, that was just how gardening was done.

“I don’t think [my grandma] could pronounce the word, ‘chemical,’” he said in an email. “Everything we did was organic.”

Today Smallwood is the executive director of the Rodale Institute, which works to create new sustainable and organic food production models for the world to follow. Smallwood has watched organic farming evolve and grow over the years, mainly via dedicated small-time farmers in pockets across the country. When Walmart announced plans to open a new line of super-cheap organic foods, Smallwood’s reaction was mixed.'

'New evidence from the Danish Cancer Society Research Center, Copenhagen has confirmed that whole grain foods made from wheat and rye significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer.

The researchers followed 1,372 colorectal cancer patients together with 1,372 matched healthy persons as part of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study.
 
To confirm whole grain wheat and rye consumption the researchers measured blood levels of alkylresorcinols – phenolic lipids consumed almost exclusively from the bran of cereal grasses wheat and rye.'

5 Diseases Proven To Respond Better To Cannabis Than Prescription Drugs

 http://webstation19.8k.com/hempmus.jpg

'The reason cannabis is so effective medicinally is directly related to its ability to interact with receptors in the body which inhibit inflammation and prevent disease. Cannabis does this so well, that few drugs can compete with its level of potency which come essentially with no side effects. These are just 5 diseases that are proven to respond better to cannabis than to drugs, however, there are many studies currently being conducted that may prove dozens more.'

'Air travel, for anyone who regularly participates in this modern miracle of technology, can be both terrifying and exhilarating. 

Not only will you be lofted at speeds greater than 500 miles per hour into the lower reaches of the stratosphere (30,000–39,000 ft) where you will be exposed to DNA-damaging cosmic x-ray radiation, but before you are in the clouds, you will inevitably face a wide range of physiological stressors, such as manmade irradiation via whole-body imaging, the prospect of body searches, some of the world's most non-nutritious food, and the constant worry of missing your flight or connection.  

Is it any wonder that people experience jet lag, or much worse?'

'There has been enormous research interest in beets because of the the unusual mix of antioxidants that they contain. The unique combination of nutritional and nutriceutical components establishes the red beet as a marvelous vegetable, easy to grow and process its natural products. 

Its strong vasodilation properties, imparted pigments, flavonoids and organic nitrogen have lead to deep investigations by pharmaceutical companies to reap the enormous array of health benefits. 

Fortunately, a vegetable can't be patented, so the beet will always remain as a very useful dietary tool in both the prevention and treatment of disease.'

'Menopause isn’t a subject most guys are interested in. Hormonal imbalances, hot flashes, night sweats — that’s all woman stuff… right? Wrong! Sorry men, there is more than a mountain of evidence to show that the phase of life sometimes dubbed “puberty in reverse” affects both women AND men. Many men are finding out the hard way that a general decline in sexual, physical, and mental activity is more of a reality than they anticipated. Guys, take a knee — it’s time to set the record straight and have “the talk” about male menopause.'

'Medical doctors tell us that there are two ways to treat a seasonal cold or flu. The first is to rest and you’ll feel better in 7 to10 days. The second is to treat it with pain relievers and fever-reducing drugs, and you’ll get well in 7 to 10 days. 

Conventional medical wisdom once promoted management of fever with antipyretic drugs like acetaminophen, but new research indicates that artificially lowering fever reduces the natural immune response and prolongs illness. Aspirin use may even make viral infections more severe and contribute to secondary bacterial infections.'

Debunking the 5 Biggest Myths About Cannabis

'The more research is released, the more legalization makes sense.

Back in the 1930s, the arguments to criminalize cannabis were bizarre and openly racist. The anti-pot crusader Harry Anslinger made all sorts of over-the-top claims, such as, “Marihuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marihuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters.”

Nowadays more than 100 million Americans say they’ve smoke pot, millions use cannabis regularly to treat illnesses and it is as legal as alcohol in two U.S. states. However, it remains illegal under federal law largely due to scare tactics ingrained in our society, which date back even prior to Anslinger.'

'Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. If you don’t have enough of it, your body simply cannot function at its best. Insufficient cellular magnesium levels set the stage for deterioration of proper metabolic function that typically snowballs into more significant health problems.   

As reported by GreenMedInfo, researchers have now detected 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins, reflecting how important this mineral is to a great many biological processes. For example, magnesium plays a role in your body's detoxification processes and therefore is important for minimizing damage from environmental chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins.'
